DepressionDepression goes far deeper than just feeling down, disappointed or sad. Depression is an illness which affects the way we live our day to day lives in a very profound way. Statistically 1 in 8 women suffer from depression while the number is slightly better for men at 1 in 15. Either way depression is a very common and dangerous illness which needs to be addressed by a mental health professional as soon as it becomes evident.

Self EsteemSelf Esteem or more precisely the lack of self esteem can be the cause of a variety of mental health issues. Having respect for one’s self is a necessary part of our overall mental health. Unfortunately there are sometimes people and events in our lives which damage our self respect and in-turn lowers our self esteem. It can also cause relationship problems and prevent you from socialising and mixing with people you really want to be with.

The individual causes of low self esteem are as varied as life itself but with the right guidance and tools you can learn to regain your self respect and enhance your self esteem. Call me on 9427 3122 and start rebuilding your self esteem.
